New York: Grove Press, 1962. The prospectus for the first American edition of Naked Lunch, published by the publisher, Barney Rosset, in anticipation of an obscenity trial. The prospectus includes lengthy statements by Terry Southern and E. S. Seldon, as well as short statements by John Ciardi, Norman Mailer, Robert Lowell and Jack Kerouac. It also includes an 8 page excerpt from the novel. The prospectus appears to be rare. Some very light dust-soiling, otherwise a fine copy. 8vo, 14 pages, original printed self-wrappers, stapled as issued.
